Perch, White (River Perch, Ruddy Bass): Caught on Brook Trout tackle with the artificial fly and with worm, shrimp, and small-fish bait in brackish and fresh watersó mostly on the flat clay and muddy bottoms of shallow places in tidal rivers. Found from Nova Scotia to South Carolina, and inhabits both salt and fresh waters. The average length of this fish is about nine inches and its weight one-half pound or less, but numerous specimens measuring fourteen inches and weighing two pounds or more have been taken, mostly in New England waters. Is abundant in the Chesapeake and its tributaries, the lakes and streams of the St. John River, New Brunswick, in the Tar and Neuse rivers of North Carolina, and the creeks that flow into the Delaware River. In fly-fishing, use small bright-colored flies of the Brook Trout patterns.
